A Record Breaking Thanksgiving for the High Plains

21 Nov 2017, 1:04 pm

Here is something you don’t hear every Thanksgiving…Record warmth is in the forecast for parts of the High Plains.  The calendar says November, but it won’t be feeling that way with highs well above normal.

Why So Warm?

Typically this time of the year the jet stream stays in the southern half of the U.S.  The forecast for the jet stream on Thanksgiving has the jet stream pushing north over the northern Rockies and High Plains.  This will lead to well above normal temperatures and even the potential for some record highs for the Southwest and High Plains.

Record Highs

Record high temperatures will be possible throughout Idaho, Colorado, Montana and the Dakotas.

Montana alone could see several records broken across the entire state!

Extended Forecast

Definitely get out and enjoy these great temperatures because seasonable temperatures are back in the extended forecast.
